Feb. 27, 2004


ATHENS, Ga.--The Tennessee men's swimming and diving team remains in fourth place with 321 points after the third day of competition at the SEC championships Friday.

The Vols are 64 points behind third-place Georgia while Auburn continues to lead with 790.

Senior Jamie Graves was eighth in the 200-yard butterfly in 1:47.99. Senior Andrew Bree led a group of four Vols in the 200-yard breaststroke, finishing fourth in 1:57.96. Brent Deputy (2:01.79), Evan Fischer (2:02.91) and Kiel Huston (2:04.23) placed 12th, 14th and 16th, respectively

"Senior Jamie Graves had a phenomenal unshaved 200 butterfly," UT head coach John Trembley said. "That sets him up very well for NCAAs. Bree swam a spectacular 200 breaststroke. He looked great in the water."

Freshman Jevon Tarantino finished eighth in the platform with 430 points, while freshman Chris Franklin turned in a lifetime-best in the 200-yard backstroke as he finished 10th in 1:47.23.

The Vols had a pair of fifth-place relay showings. The 200-yard medley relay team of Josh Fulton, Bree, Andrew Engle and Raymond Rosal finished in 1:28.60. The 200-yard freestyle foursome of Rosal, Tyler Gustafson, Bree and Engle touched the wall in 1:19.57.
